The 2011 is approaching its finish line and not great analysis is needed to state there are two brand names in the smartphone world occupying top positions: Google Android and Apple’s iOS. To get a more precise picture, Flurry analytics have made a research and found out that from 200 million US smartphone users, the 55 percent (109 million users) own either an Android or an iOS device. As to the percentage these two occupy worldwide, it makes up 41 percent.
China comes second after the US with 35 million Android or iOS users. The UK is the next (17 million users), followed by France, Germany and Japan each with 10 million users. To make the research possible, Flurry has tracked the usage of 140,000 apps over 30 days. Flurry has examined also the ownership of either an Android or an Apple smartphone according to the age or the social class, using country specific data from International Monetary Fund (IMF). And even that is not all, as Flurry also revealed countries most prone to grow as related to the mentioned two brands, and also the most mature markets. All information is presented in a chart form and can be accessed on Flurry’s blog.
This information will be interesting not only for ordinary users, but also for manufactures and carriers, who will now have raw material to adjust their strategies for the upcoming year.
